NINE YEARS AGO TODAY I shared this post about my training in "gallery sitting" for the co-op gallery, 267. I had just been accepted as a member.

At NINE this morning, I will head over to join some artist friends of mine for coffee, conversation and to share art—what we've been working on since we last met.

(One of the artists expected to join us this morning was also a member of Gallery 267—in fact, she recommended I apply.)

I will share the book cover I recently designed and illustrated and the companion bookmark. Maybe I'll share the roughs for my next "graphic-poem" art magazine.

IT'S COMPLETELY UNDERSTANDABLE Most people look at me like I'm some kind of obsessed nut-job. I'm so easily hooked on "things." And my Love Affair with Emily Dickinson is a perfect example. It all started back in December 2004 when I set out to do a portrait of the Belle of Amherst. Six portraits later and her inclusion in all but one of my four art magazines, I think it's safe to say, "I obsess much."

Here's a song parody I wrote on this day back in 2011 on that very subject.

THE BALLAD OF SLATTS & EM'LY

Waiting for a bus in South Amherst,
Trying to get to Holyoke or Ware.
The man at a Mac said, "You've got a new book?"
"Is there something with us that you can share?"

POE! You know it ain't easy,
You know how hard it can be.
The way this is going
I'm gonna EMILY me.

Thinking of my daughter and my friends and family who live in Boston and my friend, Susan, who ran in the Boston Marathon a year ago today. Sending love to you all.

You didn't let it stop you. Not from running or living or being the strong, open-hearted, and hopeful people that you've always been. Today and always, I am inspired by the quiet, deep courage that takes.

Happy Birthday, BUFFY!
I don't think I ever watched this TV show—BUFFY, the Vampire Killer. I got my weekly subscription to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY and I was "well read" in all that entertainment news but "what was cool" was not necessarily an opinion I formed myself. All I know is when it came time to match up an adversary to the most famous vampire—Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula—for a song parody I was illustrating, "this week's what's cool vampire killer" might be just what I was looking for! So, I grabbed my EW magazine sources and inked away.

And here she is! And here it is her birthday!
